    Jeffco asks for another $33 million in local funding
    Editor:
    I would be the first in line to say Jeffco’s newest teachers deserve a raise. With sky rocking cost of housing and how hard teachers work they deserved to be well paid.

    Social-media post doesn’t represent the Jeffco GOP
    Editor:
    Sal Christ wrote an article about an unfortunate post on the Facebook page of the Jefferson County Republican Party.  I am not the author of the post, but I am the one who deleted it off of our page as soon as I found out about it because I considered it to be inappropriate and offensive.

    ‘Fixing Our Damn Roads’ a good idea
    Editor:
    Regarding Greg Romberg’s commentary last week on the “Fix Our Damn Roads” initiative and his opposition to it, I have an opposing opinion.

    Columnists should engage all readers
    Editor:
    I’ve previously written about how John Riddell is a poor columnist and how we subscribers deserve better.
     In John’s recent column, he provides a reasonable and somewhat thoughtful description of the motivation and courage of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. Rather than leave the column at that, he ineffectively tries to connect their patriotism to some of the political and cultural issues of today.

    There’s nothing wrong with political system
    Editor:
    Re: “What’s wrong with our political system” by Jim Rohrer, July 5, 2018
    I would like to answer Jim Rohrer’s rhetorical question that heads his editorial column: There is nothing wrong with our political system.

    Progressives believe in equal opportunity
    Editor:
    It must be awfully nice to be born a couple of rungs up the advantage ladder and not even know it. Mr. Riddell talks about the veterans of D-Day and pleads for respect for them, and as the daughter of these men, I appreciate that. The stories we heard were of unbelievable terror, pain and deprivation.

    Advocating Cassidy for Jeffco assessor
    Editor:
    This letter is to advocate for Brian Cassidy as Jefferson County assessor in  
    June’s Republican primary.
    This county’s taxpayers, especially small businesses, need change. They need fair and accurate property valuations that represent actual value rather than inflated, unrealistic values that add unnecessary tax and appeal burden on the citizen and business owner.
    Brian is extremely qualified for the position of assessor: a Colorado

    Re-elect Tim James to Foothills Rec board
    Editor:
    I encourage Foothills Park & Recreation District Ward 3 residents to support the re-election of Tim James as our Ward 3 director for the following reasons:
    • Tim has acquired a comprehensive knowledge of FHPRD as the result of his experience serving on the board in various capacities.
    • During board meetings I’ve observed how he respectfully listens to everyone’s comments before he makes an informed decision.

    Aquarium not fair to animals
    Editor:
    Southwest Plaza will soon become home to more than 1,000 animals in SeaQuest Aquarium’s latest venture into animal exploitation. And that’s not a good thing.
    No matter how big their enclosures, no matter how many pretty pictures they paint on the walls, and no matter how many tree branches they offer, it in no way compares to the habitat that these animals were meant to be in.
    And despite what they will have us believe, animals are still taken from the wild.

    ‘Useless ideological diatribes’
    Editor:
    I know it is a common practice for newspapers to have regular columnists from opposing sides of the political spectrum so that readers can benefit from different opinions on important issues.
